and deduce that the sequence (/N(X))NğI tends to 0 for almost all x e [0,1] (with
respect to Lebesgue measure). Hence show that, for almost all x e [0,1], the sequence
(An* [An;t]) is equirepartitioned with respect to Lebesgue measure (Section 13.4,
Problem 7).

16. Let U be a continuous endomorphism of the space LR(X, p) with norm <^ 1 (in other
words, such that NI(£/ /) <£ NI(/)) and such that the relation/^ 0 implies U-f^O

(a) Let (fn) be a sequence of functions in Ğ^R which converges almost everywhere

all n. Show that under these conditions the sequence (U-fn) converges almost every-
